Galerie du Monde is pleased to share that Liu Kuo-Sung’s iconic work The Ring B is featured in the “Kathmandu Triennale 2077” in Nepal. The exhibition explores diverse expressions of cartography (map art) ranges from the cosmic to the subconscious, literary to abstract, and ties together the themes of roots, kinship, freedom and exploration.
The Ring B (1973)
Ink, Acrylic and Collage on Paper
In 1972, the crew of Apollo 17 took the famous Blue Marble image of the Earth, which inspired Liu to create The Ring B a year later. This painting juxtaposes the earth shaped by the millennia of human imagination with a photograph taken from 29,000km away in space. Human traditions, myths and history approach the actual image for a cosmic rendezvous.
